Lose Jesus?

 

Lose Jesus?
By Tom D Blakely
~

Has Jesus lost His saving power
Has God become so weak?
Or is it us that wandered off
And Christ no longer seek?
If we lose Jesus we must stop
Our steps we must retrace,
To prayer, God’s word, or circumstance
The place we fell from grace.

We act the part for outward show
Inside our hearts are cold,
Our faith is weak and joy is gone
We’re tempted by the world.
Our Saviour paid an awesome price
To save us from our sin,
And nothing would our Lord withhold
When we give all to Him.

The devil would discourage us
Distractions will abound,
But each of us will know the place
Where Jesus may be found.
If we lose Jesus we must stop
Our steps we must retrace,
To prayer, God’s word, or circumstance
The place we fell from grace.

‘Indeed we do come to You, for You are the Lord our God.’
[Jeremiah 3:22]
